A bride and groom in Canada spent part of their wedding night in jail after they were arrested following a bar brawl, police said.
On Sunday, police responded to a bar in downtown Edmonton, where the bride and groom were taken into custody for their alleged involvement in the incident, Noreen Remtulla, spokesperson for the Edmonton Police Service, told ABC News.
The bride was charged with assault, while the groom was charged with mischief under $5,000, Remtulla said. It is unclear how the altercation started.
Witnesses on the scene told CTV Edmonton that the bride -- still in her white wedding dress -- actively participated in the altercation, which spilled out of the bar.
“The bride is just swinging, and the melee ends up on the sidewalk,” one witness told CTV.
“As we’re watching, you just see this girl in a wedding dress right in the middle of it,” another witness said.
